Imperfection Correction

A solution for skin irregularities


Spider veins, skin tags, and age spots…oh my! These pesky skin irregularities can show up at any age, and for that matter – anywhere on the body. At some point, many of us will notice a brown spot, spider vein, skin tag, or some other irregularity pop up on our skin. They can make you feel very self-conscious when they occur on the face, neck and chest, not to mention other more frequently exposed areas of your body.

Many of these conditions develop from normal aging, sun damage, or genetic predisposition, and clients come to me all the time to find out what options they have to make them go away. First off, I am always excited to share how effective non-invasive, hi-frequency treatments can be to correct minor skin abnormalities. Without penetrating the skin’s surface, hi-frequency can quickly and effectively fade or even remove skin abnormalities on the whole body.

This works by utilizing high-frequency radio waves to conduct heat energy into each treatment area. Any moisture within the target area evaporates as skin absorbs this heat, effectively vaporizing the affected cells. Eventually, the dead cells peel off, leaving behind clear, smooth, flawless skin. Let’s take a closer look at the types of conditions that respond well to this type of treatment.

Spider Veins, also known as broken capillaries, can occur on any area of the body. These tiny, red, web-shaped lines are common on the legs and are entirely harmless. Broken capillaries occur when blood pools inside your veins, causing the vein to bulge and eventually branch out. This branch is what we refer to as a spider vein. Sun exposure and ultraviolet light are the primary causes of this condition, along with high blood pressure, rosacea, and other cardiovascular health conditions.

Skin Tags are common, harmless growths that can form anywhere on the body, but are prevalent on the back, chest, armpits, and groin area. These growths often develop following a period of weight gain or in areas where jewelry or clothing continually rub against the skin.

Cherry Angiomas are a common type of vascular irregularity and tend to be more prevalent in thin-skinned or fair-skinned individuals. They appear as superficial, smooth red bumps and can occur anywhere on the body. Cherry angiomas are most common in individuals over the age of 30, and these may be unsightly, but are otherwise completely harmless.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia occurs when sebaceous glands swell as a result of trapped sebum and small bumps appear on the skin. Hi-frequency treatments target the moisture within these glands, vaporizing the affected cell. These look like small, flesh-colored growths that have a dip in the middle – like a donut.

Milia are tiny, firm cysts that develop when keratin and sebum are trapped beneath the uppermost layer of your skin. They typically occur in small groups on the cheeks and nose but can also occur in other areas of the body. They are often difficult to remove with manual extraction, however, this treatment effectively eradicates these rigid, white bumps often found around the eye area and other parts of the face.

Keratosis is excessive growth of keratin, a skin protein, on the skin. There are a variety of causes that lead to several different types of keratosis. The three most common types of keratosis are keratosis pilaris, actinic keratosis, and seborrheic keratosis. There are many others, most of which are rare or have an inherited (genetic) basis.

Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra, or DPN, is a skin condition that typically appears as small, dark or skin-colored bumps on the face, neck, and upper torso. Some people only develop a few bumps, while others have many bumps covering large parts of their skin. DPN primarily affects people of African and Asian descent and tends to run in families.

Hi-frequency is a simple, non-invasive treatment that does not get nearly enough press, and should be explored with a qualified clinical aesthetician who has been trained to treat these conditions. The results, while simple and low cost, can be quite impressive!
